The bad apples are spoiling the whole bunch

I was talking with one of our reporters, Tony Fioriglio, this morning about the Christmas day murder in Norristown when he said if they would arrest about 40 people all of the recent violence would probably just go away. He's written about several of the recent shootings and it is becoming clear that they're connected. Revenge is a dirty business. I agreed with him and went on to say if they would round up about 80 or so bad apples they could probably clean the whole town up. What would it take to actually get this done? I'm thinking a little targeted enforcement along Green Street would be a great place to start. What do you think?

Newtown massacre

I haven't been on for a while, but the events in Newtown prompted me to invite a couple of local legislators in to talk about what can be done, if anything, to possibly prevent suce a tragedy from ever occuring again. Here is a link to my interview with state Sen. Daylin Leach, who would like to see our gun laws tightened.
